Linux Cloud Engineer on Middleware

In our team we are looking for a colleague who likes to work on the Middleware layer. We hope that you are passionate about databases and applications in (private) cloud environments, and you don't run away from on-prem environments. In short, we hope you enjoy a variety of environments within middleware and associated infrastructure. If this describes you then come and talk to team Yellow at Sentia!

At Sentia we set up and maintain cloud environments and strive to have no down time. We accomplish this by taking ownership and automate and virtualize as much as possible. Our engineers are all-rounders with their own specialism within the (private) cloud field. You would be an all-round engineer, mainly focusing on Linux. You migrate, maintain & deploy solutions in a (private) cloud environment and advise our clients (of which you are possibly the lead engineer) for improvements in the areas of security, reliability and performance.

Together with your team you use pro active management and you make sure that the technical requests of the customers are treated in the best possible way. You will make smart use of automation wherever possible. The analysis of complex incidents/problems belongs to your tasks as well, but you like to break seal on this. You’ll do everything possible to prevent incidents by identifying potential problems and closely monitoring all environments.

Starting to work at Sentia, you will be assigned a buddy. Your buddy is a colleague who familiarizes you with your team, the systems, culture and way of working. You will also be introduced to the clients.

During the initial period, you will mostly be busy learning how we work. You will need to understand our standard of IaC coding, our deployment mechanisms and our operational processes. You will also work on preparing a number of releases, to learn our way of working, hands-on. Following that, you’ll also get to know all the customer systems, while participating in support and projects. In this way, you learn immediately about the environments used by your customers.

Luckily, we work with a clear process at Sentia and everything is clearly documented. You can also approach your colleagues with any questions you may have.

Our Sentian Values



We regularly leave our comfort zone.

We challenge ourselves more than Sentia challenges us.

We have realistic views of our skills and always look for ways to improve.

We accept mistakes, but we strive for zero repeats.

Always transparent


We communicate clearly, concisely and often.

We share our thoughts and concerns immediately with honesty.

We don’t make assumptions, we rather ask that extra question.

We don’t rely on emails alone for perfect communication

Listen first

Listen first

We focus on listening rather than responding.

We take the approach that everything is a hypothesis and we could be wrong.

Internally we also listen. If you have an idea or a problem; we are here for you.

We understand first before we try to be understood

Extreme Ownership

Extreme Ownership

We do what we say and say what we do (and don’t do).

We take ownership, always willing to go the extra (s)mile.

We are accountable and document our work (and time).

We strive to exceed expectations (of customers, team members, partners).



We don’t speak negatively about colleagues or customers.

We look at the upside first when change presents itself.

We don’t complain, but there’s always room to share our concerns.

We never miss an opportunity to give positive feedback.
